Your basic weekly planner has just met the beauty and richness of the Liturgical Year!

Covering 14 months, this spiral bound planner not only includes both the full Liturgical Year and full calendar year but gives you ample time to plan for this year’s Advent and Christmas seasons if you get it before November.

  • Class of feast and vestment color
  • First Fridays and Saturdays
  • Holy Days of Obligation
  • Ember Days

While this planner is rich in matters of faith, it has lost nothing in practicality. With a monthly goal-setting page, a spread for daily planning each week, weekly to-do lists, habit trackers, and ample space for notes, it’s sure to satisfy all your basic planning needs. An additional bullet journal-style flex page each week allows for customized charts, such as meal planning or budgeting. This smart, attractive planner will bring the Faith into your daily preparations to help you stay grounded amidst the hustle and turbulence of life.

Great First Edition - Can't wait to see more!!
I love the beauty of this Catholic planner. I ordered the mini planner. I agree with the other reviews that the pages are too thin and that it will be hard to keep this planner looking nice all year long. I have found that the G2 07 Pilot pens do not seem to bleed through and have chosen the gold color for writing (matches the color in the planner). I would prefer a vertical appointment spread (I do like the previously mentioned idea of meal planning on the appointment pages and idea of time slots). I greatly appreciate the extra two page spread for weekly goals, tracker, and planning. I like the dot page for bullet journaling, weekly examen, gratitudes, weather, exercise, etc. I like the future planning page spread in the back. I'd be willing to forgo the extra two months for thicker pages. Removeable bookmark, monthly tabs, and clear plastic cover with elastic band would be a nice bonus!

Difficulty with two spreads for each week
What I love: I give 5 starts for the traditional liturgical value, and absolutely love how this is a mom's companion to the wall calendar. I enjoy monthly spreads with the feast days, liturgical colors and the large image for the month. Artistic quality is wonderful! Struggles: I am having great difficulty with two weekly spreads and would much rather have everything on one open spread. It's hard to navigate flipping through the extra page, for example, I would rather room for meal planning be on each day within the liturgical week to plan our meals feast/fast according to the liturgical schedule without flipping back and forth. I also struggle with days laid out in a horizontal form in the weekly spread and prefer a vertical layout with times, then I can fit lists, meal planning within the day. It is also too thick, making it cumbersome to carry. I ordered the large size which also makes it bulky, but the smaller version would have been too small (one size in between would have been ideal). Suggestions for future: Combine week to one open spread using vertical layout with times, this would also greatly improve paper quality used as it would cut the amount of printing almost in half. (for those who like the extra space I recommend a separate notebook/journal, but personally I would use my own that I can scratch up, write grocery lists, etc.; I just want to see it at the same time versus flipping around). I think the higher quality paper would also benefit the art quality of the images. If I am being too nitpicky because of my own personal preferences maybe the images with dates/feasts could be printed in a sticker form, that way I could put them in a planner of my choosing? I hate to give it anything less than 5 stars because of the value and effort, but I'm sure next year will have the necessary improvements!

onderful planner with incredible potential
This is a gorgeous full-color planner for the traditional family, ideally for a homemaker. I love the quotes throughout, the useful goals and habit trackers for each week, the meal planning space, bullet page, and various notations for feast days and holy days of obligation. While some may not, I actually very much like the spiral binding and the planner can fold flat. My one concern in ordering this planner was the paper quality; it is a serious issue. The pages are very thin, and it feels as thin as a post-it note. I suspect this is to cut down on the thickness of the planner, as it is just under 3/4" thick (for the mini sized planner). If heavier paper were used, it would probably make it bulkier. Another area for improvement is to increase the space for meal planning. It is very small, and can only house one meal per day in my opinion. Again, I have the mini sized version, so maybe this is not an issue with the full-size one. If I am being very nit-picky, I would also mention that the art for each day is preferred style; that being said, I appreciate that it is in color. Let me be the first to say that this is a wonderful planner with incredible potential for future editions. It is a cost-effective alternative to the popular SaintMaker, and I like the format better too. My husband's SaintMaker is split up quarterly with a book binding, and daily time-slots to write in appointments. I appreciate that this planner covers 14 months, with 8 lines in each day to write in activities/appointments, and also includes the spiral binding. Thank you, Sophia Press! I will look forward to purchasing again when the paper quality is improved!
